Research Strategy

While we found most of the information, we did not find any historical acquisitions by Robins & Morton and BL Harbert International. We first searched through the official websites of the two companies since we believed they would have the most credible information. However, the websites did not provide relevant information and instead focused on aspects such as services offered and the key markets that are served.
Since we could not find information on acquisitions using company resources, we attempted to look through media platforms and industry sites, such as ENR, Forbes, BizJournal, TechCrunch, Bloomberg, and PR Newswire. We hoped that we could get relevant insights from company executives and industry experts. However, we did not find useful information. Instead, these sites focused on the company's ongoing projects.
As a last resort, we attempted looking through data aggregators, such as Owler, PitchBook, Hoovers, and Crunchbase. These sites provide information on past acquisitions, and we hoped that we could find useful information. However, the sites revealed that there were no acquisitions made by the companies. For these reasons, we concluded that information regarding historical acquisitions for Robins & Morton and BL Harbert International is not available in the public domain.

Research Strategy

In order to find the acquisitions made by Coastal Construction Group, we first searched the company website. However, unlike the websites of Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Co, LLC and Construction Partners, Inc, there was no information pertaining to the acquisition made by the company. Next, we searched the third-party databases such as Hoovers and Crunchbase. Crunchbase does not list any acquisitions made by the company and the names of the company's two subsidiaries are behind a paywall on Hoovers. Lastly, we searched media sources such as Forbes, Entrepreneur, and Inc. for any news coverage on the acquisitions; however, we did not find any coverage of acquisitions (if any) made by the Coastal Construction Group.

In order to find the acquisition values of the companies acquired by Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Co, LLC and Construction Partners, Inc, we first searched the media or press release section of the websites. However, for most of the older acquisitions (over a decade ago) there was no such information available. As in the case of Coastal Construction Group, third-party databases like Hoovers and Crunchbase did not provide any relevant information either. A search in media sources such as Biz Journals, Globe News Wire, Forbes, and Entrepreneur did help us find some data, but there were still acquisitions for which we were unable to find the acquisition value.
